2017 Meursault, 1er Cru Les Chevalieres, Xavier Monnot

$550

This isn’t the fat ripe Meursault of yesteryear, this flinty and mineral with citrus and flowers abound. We loved the intensity here; it’s elegant and cleansing, super fresh and long. Beautiful stuff at an incredible price while we have it!!

This well-balanced wine connects intense. bright acidity with the pure citrus fruits. The wine is perfumed by accents of flowers, with rich fruit as well as spice. Drink from 2021.

Description

Xavier Monnot

Xavier Monnot is a leading producer in Meursault whose winemaking style emphasizes purity of fruit, elegance, and complexity. Xavier can trace his mother’s ancestors, the Monniers, back to 1723, with six generations of winegrowing. Xavier took over in 1994 after completing his oenological studies and began replanting parcels with a combination of selection massale from old vines and new clones, and updated the cellar with modern equipment. Prior to the release of the 2005 vintage, the property was known as Domaine Rene Monnier (Xavier’s grandfather). In 2005, along with improvements in the vineyard and cellar, Xavier began bottling his wines under his own label.
